Does anyone know what this article is referencing? Go cart? Huh? What?
Answer: The 10th Mountain Division, being responsible for developing and testing new equipment had a wide array of equipment that was used in and around Camp Hale. This article describes one such vehicle. Another one, described by Chuck Roberts, was something that was like a motorbike with skis used to pull cargo and men around.

Instead of a Photo of the Week I am including articles as well (for lack of photos).
This one comes courtesy of the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection and was published in the Ski-zette on Saturday, September 30, 1944.
(It probably didn't apply to Mountain Troops)

Pvt. Armbruster is awarded with a unit challenge coin for going above and beyond as a member.
He has not only sheltered the unit under canvas, but has also served as a valuable source of info on the 10th and its history.
"But that's not the worst part...."
He also has clearly defined what 'a little' means.
